Dodecanese Islands

The Ionian Islands are also commonly known as "Eptanisa", which translated to English means "seven islands." The neighboring Italians have left their mark on these islands, as is evidenced by the music and the flirtatiousness of the dances. Instrumentation includes violi, klarino, lavouto.
